I have a dinner that I prepare for a financial group of 20 and they like a bit of a show with dinner but are also a mixed group with a few VERY unadventurous eaters- added limitations are I have no burner, and they don't want any raw proteins.
In the past I have held them in rapt attention as I tell the story of Cesar Cardini and how Caesar salad is not from Italy but from Mexico then I make a Caesar salad without eggs (thus removing any drama) and that is that.
Any ideas out there? Needs to be a cold dish, preferably with a good story or at least as much drama as whisking stuff in a bowl them tossing a salad. I am very bored with the Caesar Salad Show. ( we do a flambe dessert with a blow torch-- it was Cherries Jubilee, then Bananas Foster - this time it will be Baked Alaska)
